Creating Balance

For the past 6 months my feet have barely touched the ground. Earlier on in the year I was invited to take part in a project curated by Claire Sambrook of Strong Island in conjunction with Anglepoise.
The project would see 10 artists paired up with 10 photographers to create one image that would become a poster. The iconic lamp didn't have to directly feature in the image as the wide range of styles applied to the 10 posters would all be linked by the common theme 'creating balance'. This was a great opportunity to work on something where we could experiment and play around with lots of different ideas, coupled with the input from each respective artist.

The artist/s I partnered up with were husband and wife Barry & Roo Abrook who share a mutual love for skateboarding, screen printing, taxidermy and victoriana along with myself.
The final image has now been handed in and will be on show alongside the other posters in the window of Liberty's of London. Claire will be holding a talk on the project at the V&A museum, the project will also be a part of The Icons Design Trail and all of the work will be on show at The Aspex Gallery in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Claire and to Anglepoise for involving me in this project and can't wait to see all of the work come together.
